Camp Hana Hou

SURFING CAMP FOR KIDS OUT-LIVING CANCER

Riding waves in the mighty ocean is one of the most self-empowering things a human being can do. When Chris Keet began donating his time teaching surfing to organizations like the Teddy Bear Foundation and Hugs For Cubs nine years ago, he saw firsthand the impact it made upon the brave and inspirational children fighting cancer.

Fast forward to today, and we get this chance yearly at Camp Hana Hou, the program we offer for these brave souls every summer.  Hana Hou means "One More Time" in Hawaiian- but in this case it may as well mean "one more wave," cause it seems that these campers are always stoked to ride one more!

Our Goal for this camp: to use the joy of surfing and healing powers of the ocean to inspire and amplify the confidence, camaraderie, and courage that is so vital to these inspiring young surfers. 

The camp is designed for 15-20 campers for a one day camp:

  • Healthy meals provided 
  • Expert Surfing instruction
  • Daily, fun-filled activities 
  • Video/photos 
  • A huge gear bag full of fun surfing specific clothing/items and trophies!
